Hungry for More?

Put down the bowl slowly and step away from last night’s leftovers. Wouldn’t you rather treat yourself (better yet, a top client you’ve been wooing) to a yummy meal on the town? And we know just where you should go. Last week, top businesswomen in major cities across the country told us where they take A-list clients. Here are five more.

Las Vegas: Palm Restaurant
Located in the Forum Shops at Caesar’s, it boasts “a business lunch prix-fixe menu, and a hustle-and-bustle atmosphere,” says Robin Jay, author of The Art of the Business Lunch. She also recommends Mon Ami Gabi, an outdoor bistro overlooking the Bellagio fountains.

Los Angeles: Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel
In the town to see and be seen, shoe designer Taryn Rose recommends this hot spot. “There’s nothing like a Leonardo DiCaprio sighting to make a lunch meeting memorable,” she tells PINK. “My client is still talking about it.”

Washington, D.C.: B. Smith’s Restaurant
Paula Atallah, manager of Initiatives at Women in Cable Telecommunications, loves the eclectic menu (Cajun, Creole and Southern cuisine). “Plus, it’s centrally-located in the historical Union Station, which has that pivotal parking.”

Seattle: Seastar
Ash Hans, director of global customer operations at Expedia, frequents this restaurant and raw bar’s two locations. She raves about the variety of dining choices – from the main room to private dining areas to the bar for casual lunches and work happy-hour functions.

“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.”
